Newcomer renforshort has unveiled a special cover of Gorillaz hit ‘Feel Good Inc’.
Turning the track into a razor-sharp pop belter, it sees renforshort collaborate with online sensation Matues Asato on guitar for an alt-glitching delight.
Speaking about the cover, renforshort explains: “Trying to find a cover to release was one of the more time-consuming things I have done. We were going through basically every artist that I loved and couldn’t figure it out, but for some reason, at that moment I just forgot about Gorillaz. Rhinestone Eyes was blowing up on Tiktok and I was like, guys what are we doing not doing a Gorillaz song right now- and it was settled that I was going to cover Feel Good Inc. It was really hard to get right because it’s a pretty rappy song and I’m not a rapper, so I spent a lot of time trying to put together an arrangement but I’m so happy with how it turned out. Jeff Hazin killed the production, Mateus Asato killed the guitar and it’s crazy that it ended up being one of my favorite things that I’ve put out in a really long time. I’m so happy to be able to share it with you all :)”
The release completes a standout year for renforshort, emerging in style with numbers such as ‘nostalgic (luvsick)’ and ‘afterthoughts’ pointing to an artist we all better keep an eye on into 2021 and beyond.
